Q: I see engine fires sometimes on the freeway, but I have been lucky enough to not have that happen to me. What normally causes an engine fire and is there any way to prevent them from occurring?
A: Yes, it not a commonplace thing, but it does happen often enough to be concerned. There’s rarely a single cause for any given car fire and that’s why it’s more likely that there was a combination of causes: human causes, mechanical causes, and chemical causes, and they all worked together to create an incredibly dangerous situation.

What People Are Saying About Us

I've been a customer since 2003. When my old VW Golf really gives up, I will purchase another car that Pierre, with Bonnie's help, can fix when needed. Vanguard is one of those treasures Marin should cherish and keep.
